  5. Cohorts Webster defined: co·hortnoun \ˈkō-ˌhȯrt\ a: one of 10 divisions of an ancient Roman legion b: a group of warriors or soldiers c: band, group d : a group of individuals having a statistical factor (as age or class membership) in common in a demographic study <a cohort of premedical students>

  6. Cohorts Cohort Fun Facts: • The National Reporting System (NRS) requires that states report on the follow up measures of entered and retained employment, attainment of a secondary credential and entry into postsecondary education or training for adult education participants. • Beginning in Program Year 2012, the NRS requires states to automatically report the follow up measures for all students who meet certain criteria for each measure. This automatic Cohort designation will vary according to each follow up measure. • Follow Up is no longer determined by selected goals. Goals are for service planning only. • Cohorts are now based on the following: • Participant’s labor and educational status at registration, which should be updated yearly • Participant’s educational status at exit • Participant completes the ALP +the information is entered into MAERS =MAERS determines the designated Cohorts automatically

  7. Cohorts 2 Types of Cohorts: • Educational Cohorts • Obtain GED • Obtain HSD • Post Secondary Education • Employment Cohorts • Obtain Employment • Retain Employment

  8. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Educational Cohorts are determined by– • Participant’s Educational Status at Entry Note: If a Participant’s registration continues across program years, the # of Transferrable Credits Previously Earned should be updated yearly at registration for all Participants in the HSD Instructional Area and/or • Participant’s Educational Status at Exit

  9. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Obtain GED Cohort – Determined after Exit by completing the General tab in the Follow Up screen. This required question must be answered for every participant regardless of their course of instruction.

  10. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Obtain GED Cohort cont. – If Yes is selected on the General tab, the Participant is automatically placed in the GED Cohort. After clicking Update, an Obtain GED tab displays in the Participant’s Follow Up screen.

  11. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Obtain HSD Cohort – Determined at registration on the Credits/Tests tab. Once the % of Completion is displaying 50% or more, the Participant will automatically be placed in the HSD Cohort at exit.

  12. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Obtain HSD Cohort cont. – Once the % of Completion is at 50% or higher, the Participant is automatically placed in the HSD Cohort. An Obtain HSD tab displays in the Participant’s Follow Up screen once the Participant is program exited.

  13. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Postsecondary Education Cohort – This Cohort can be determined by either the educational Status at Entry or by the secondary credential obtainment from the Follow Up completed after Exit: • Status at Entry - Determined at registration on the Entry Status tab. If the Participant has already earned a GED or HSD prior to program entry they will automatically be placed in the Postsecondary Cohort. • Status at Exit – Determined after Program Exit if a secondary credential is obtained while enrolled in the program.

  14. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Postsecondary Education Cohort cont. – Status at Entry : Determined at registration on the Entry Status tab. If the Participant has already earned a GED or HSD prior to program entry they will automatically be placed in the Postsecondary Cohort at Program Exit.

  15. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Postsecondary Education Cohort cont. – Status at Exit: Determined after Program Exit during the Follow Up process. If Follow Up for GED or HSD is required and it is indicated the credential is obtained while enrolled, then the Participant is automatically placed in the Postsecondary Cohort.

  16. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Postsecondary Education Cohort cont. – If the Participant already has a credential at program entry or if the Obtain GED or Obtain HSD show a positive attainment in Follow Up, the Post Sec. Educ. tab displays in the Participant’s Follow Up screen.

  17. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Postsecondary Education Year #2 Cohort – If No is selected for the Post Sec. Educ. Follow Up or the Participant was unable to be contacted through October 25th following the Program Year ending June 30th, then a second Follow Up on Postsecondary Education is required the next Program Year.

  18. Cohorts Educational Cohorts: Postsecondary Education Year #2 Cohort cont. – If Post Sec. Educ. is not attained or the participant was unable to be contacted, then the Participant is automatically placed in the Post Sec. Educ. (Yr# 2) Cohort to be followed up on within the next Program Year.

  19. Cohorts Employment Cohorts are determined by: • The Participant’s Labor Status located on the Entry Status tab at Registration. If the Participant’s registration continues into the next Program Year, this information should be updated yearly. and/or • The Participant has a positive Obtain Employment Follow Up

  20. Cohorts Employment Cohorts: Obtain Employment Cohort – Determined by the Labor Status of Unemployed within the Participant’s Registration screen. This should be updated yearly during registration.

  21. Cohorts Employment Cohorts: Obtain Employment Cohort cont. – Once the Participant exits the program, the Obtain Employment tab displays in the Participant’s Follow Up screen.

  22. Cohorts Employment Cohorts: Retain Employment Cohort – This Cohort can be determined by either the Labor Status at Registration or by the positive attainment from an Obtain Employment Follow Up. • Status at Entry – Determined by the Labor Status of Employed at Registration. Note: If a Participant’s registration continues across program years, the Labor Status should be updated yearly during registration OR • Status at Exit – Determined by a positive attainment from an Obtain Employment Follow Up.

  23. Cohorts Employment Cohorts: Retain Employment Cohort cont. – Status at Entry: Determined by the Labor Status of Employed at Registration. This should be updated yearly during registration.

  24. Cohorts Employment Cohorts: Retain Employment Cohort cont. – Once the Participant exits the program, the Retain Employment tab displays in the Participant’s Follow Up screen.

  25. Cohorts Employment Cohorts: Retain Employment Cohort cont. – Status at Exit: Determined by a positive attainment from an Obtain Employment Follow Up. If the Participant has a Labor Status of Unemployed, they have Program Exited and they have Obtained Employment, the Participant will automatically be placed in the Retain Employment Cohort.

  26. Cohorts Employment Cohorts: Retain Employment Cohort cont. – Once the positive Obtain Employment tab is updated, the Retain Employment tab will display in the Participant’s Follow Up screen. A message will display indicating when Follow Up should take place.

  29. Follow Up Follow Up Fun Facts: • Follow Up can only take place once the Participant has exited the program • A Participant must have a minimum of 12 instructional hours to qualify for Follow Up • All exited Participants with a minimum of 12 instructional hours are subject to Follow Up, regardless of their area of instruction • The Participant will automatically be placed in the designated Follow Up Cohorts based on the data entered into MAERS at Registration and/or at Program Exit • Program Exits must be entered in a timely manner to avoid missing critical Follow Up contact dates • USDOE requires a minimum response rate of 50% to be considered valid

  30. Follow Up The following errors could display when accessing Follow Up for a Participant – • The Participant is still active in the program. • If this Participant is still active, Follow Up is not yet required • If this Participant is no longer active in the program, exit the Participant then return to complete the needed Follow Up information • The Participant has under 12 hours of instruction • If this Participant has less than 12 hours of instruction, Follow Up is not required • If this Participant does have more than 12 hours of instruction, update their attendance as needed, then return to complete the needed Follow Up information

  31. Follow Up General Tab – The General tab must be updated for every Participant who has exited with 12 or more instructional hours. The only way to gather this information is to Follow Up with every Participant. If you are a GED testing center, you may have access to this information already. Why is this required? The NRS defines the applicable GED population as ‘All learners who take the GED tests…’ Contact Dates: From date of exit through October 25th following the Program Year ending June 30th. MAERS Data Entry Dates: From the date of exit through October 25th following the Program Year ending June 30th.
